3 – Bangladesh skittled by Proteas

“Bangladesh Test side bowled out for less than Steve Smith’s batting average.”


Perennial Test cricket strugglers Bangladesh have been savaged for a mammoth capitulation against South Africa which saw them bowled out for a minuscule 53 in an embarrassing Test defeat.
The Tigers’ modest second innings effort is their second lowest score in Test history with one news site summing it up perfectly with the headline “Bangladesh Test side bowled out for less than Steve Smith’s batting average.”
Some Bangladesh fans however were more unimpressed with the umpiring than the Tigers’ batting capitulation, with many taking to social media to vent their frustration at the umpiring.

2 – Football – Benzema’s Champions League goal-scoring spree

“For all your goal & assist needs.”

– Real Madrid, Twitter

Real Madrid took a funny take on Karim Benzema’s goal-scoring blitz in the Champions League which has seen him bag 6 goals in his last 119 minutes of Champions League play.
Tweeting a photo of a phone and the prolific-scoring Frenchman, Real Madrid tweeted: “For all your goal & assist needs.”
Benzema was at his damaging best in last week’s Champions League fixture at Stamford Bridge, collecting a hat-trick against Chelsea and becoming just the sixth player to score a hat-trick in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

Kevin De Bruyne and Gabriel Jesus netted goals for City while Diogo Jota and Sadio Mane scored a goal apiece for Liverpool.

'The Great' now has 21 wins in a row!


1 – Racing – Stunning ride in Queen Elizabeth 

It has been lauded as one the greatest rides you will ever see and it’s hard to argue against that.
Nash Rawiller’s ride on Think It Over’s win in the Queen Elizabeth Stakes against Zaaki and Verry Elleegant at Randwick on Saturday will go down in racing folklore.
Rawiller's peach of a ride in Saturday’s feature saw him deviate to the outside fence before running down All-Star Mile champion Zaaki with Jamie Kah aboard, to salute in the $4 million race.
